Past and Present is deeply saddened by the death of Sir John Elliott, aged 91, on 10 March 2022. An outstanding historian of early modern Spain and its empire, his contributions to scholarship have been profound and far-reaching. John was an active member of the Editorial Board of the journal for many years from his election in 1958, and after his retirement continued to attend the summer board meeting and to engage actively with P&P’s work with unfailing interest, wisdom and acuity. He was also the President of the Past and Present Society. We lament his passing and mourn his loss. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. We make his articles in Past and Present freely available to all readers as a tribute to him. An obituary will appear in the journal in due course.
